Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.
Above is used to say the dead has nothing to do with anything done in this life by others, thus they can not hear us.
Hebrews 12, cloud of witnesses is used to say those in heaven can hear us. However, this text refers to the testimonies, witness of those in Hebrews 11 when read in context.
Someone here claims that when he/she was Catholic, they believed Mary to be a god.
I do not remember any official catholic documents making such claims.
There are unofficial catholic authors who go overboard on who Mary is, and are not recognized as being orthodox doctrine.
This is a companion thread to "Is it time for Donald to bow out?" Please let's be adults about this; no polemics which is the reason I posted this here in the Christian only forum. Just state your reason for or against based on what you feel fairly certain to be true. One other thing, please just comments from US citizens eligible to vote as they are the ones to determine the outcome.
1) Where were Sodom and Gomorrah located?
It seems to me from the conversation which took place near Bethel in Gen. 13 (between Abram and Lot) that Sodom and Gomorrah were located either where the Dead Sea is today or at the northern end of the Dead Sea. Bethel is at the far northern end of the Dead Sea, so this would be the only logical location.
2) How did God destroy Sodom and Gomorrah?
My suggestion is that he destroyed it through a comet strike. Regardless, the means of...
So, after the latest revelation is it time for Donald to bow out? Why or why not? Please let's be adults about this; no polemics which is the reason I posted this here instead of News and Curent Events. Just state your reason for or against based on what you feel fairly certain to be true.
In our day and age there is a scientific answer for everything it seems. It's funny to think people refused to believe the Earth was round yet we have people nowaday's that believe a baby made from 3 different people is the evolution of science and a miracle. I'm 16 by the way, so I don't know as much as I probably should about the bible, but I've seen some pretty creepy stuff but for right now I'm just going to mention this one incident that occurred last night. So my mom and I were at...
Are you a literal "virgin-birth-ist"?
a literal "bodily resurrection-ist"?
a literal "ascension into heaven-ist"?
a literal "7 day creation-ist"?
or do you say that since none of that is reproduced by tiny mankind - in the lab -- then none of it happened "in real history"?
2+2 = 4 ... is NOT "a matter of interpretation".
God can say something that is accurate, correct, and understandable - and so with "literal virgin birth" and "literal bodily...
Latest news piece shows just how crude Donald Trump is:
How can we change the system so "We the people" can both select our candidate by popular vote and put our candidate in office by popular vote ??? I think it's something that needs to be done but where do we start to change it? The electoral college is a rigged system and I don't understand why it was ever put into...
A Muslim man was removed from a Southwest plane after saying "inshallah", Arabic for "God willing", during a phone call.
Would this have happened to a Christian? I don't think so.
The last time I checked the Constitution, we have this little thing called freedom of speech in the US. This man did nothing wrong. Yet he was taken off the plane and searched, as was his luggage. Although the search found nothing, he was not permitted to reboard the plane.
Now, before people start saying...
Australia may become the first country in the world to microchip its public. NBC news predicted that all Americans would be microchipped by 2017, but it seems Australia may have already beaten them to it.
Back in 2010, CBS news reported that the Australian government had a potential RFID microchipping plan in the works related to the health care system.
Now, it seems that this plan is...
